Here it is our gorgeous and perfectly proportioned muddy ant from the WORM range. Our aim with the muddy ant kitchen is to turn your children into explorers/scientists; enthralled, excited and curious about the world around them. When Harry was growing up he/we loved nothing better than hunting in the woods or the garden for worms, bugs or strange looking insects. Once we had gone beyond the initial “that’s disgusting” we had so much fun trying to place bugs under the microscope to see what they were like. Not only was it really interesting, it provided an activity as a family we could do together and it also added extra spice to our day trips because we were always hunting for that new ingredient or insect that we could find and if it wasn’t suitable to bring it home, we would take pictures and see if we could discover later what it was called.
Learning how to build and develop our wormery has been an activity we have done together. Activities are fun, create memories and perhaps spark an interest in the child that may last a lifetime.We have even learned some new words Lumbricus terrestris .
Worms are not included but can be bought online or even better found in the garden. We will include links to great resources that will help you build and develop your own wormery.
So much more than a mud kitchen!
- We have designed a WORMERY to fit perfectly into the back of the mud kitchen. We have had so much fun building ours. Plan how the wormery will be built, what materials you will need, investigate how to look after the worms and off you go. We can’t stop checking ours! The wormery is built using perspex and is easily taken apart to clean and then put back together.
